Oh, I can't avoid to use this opportunity to complain once more about my ISP. If I weren't doing the upgrade really early in the morning, I wouldn't have success, as I am (right now), without signal from them. These outages are getting on my nerves.
In some math related news, I finally saw a proof of the intuitive fact the determinant of a 2x2 matrix is the signed area of the parallelogram with vectors given by the column vectors of the matrix.
Also, my D-Link G122 (I think that that's the model) doesn't work
rt2500usb driver that ships with the distribution: I can
wlan0 as having wireless extensions, I
can set the device, it can see the access point, I can enter the
WEP key, but it doesn't seem to get a DHCP lease from the router.
